2019 KWLS EMERGING WRITER AWARD SEMI-FINALIST
Thought I’d share a bit of positive writing news here:
I got an email a couple days ago informing me that, although I didn’t win, I was a semi-finalist for the 2019 KWLS Emerging Writer Award for a novel in progress. I’m pleased by this result, especially since this particular organization is fairly academic and literary in its focus, and I didn’t think they’d give much weight to a genre manuscript. Plus, it definitely *is* a novel in progress and I know I have some cleaning up to do, even on the sample I sent them. In the email, they passed along some of the comments from the judges, which is great since it’s rare to get actual feedback on these things!
So, that was my yay moment for this weekend. Thanks for reading it!
